Sony - New flagship Walkman with better than CD sound quality
Sony announced that they will release their new Walkman flagship model "NW-ZX1" on December 7, which is compatible with maximum 24bit/192kHz high-resolution audio sources. Built-in memory is 128GB.
Estimate price is about ¥75,000.
An aluminum frame adds a touch of class to the device. It also reduces vibrations to help maintain high-quality sound.
Digital noise canceling and FM radio functions were taken out to minimize the chances of imparting a negative effect on the sound quality. It is designed with high-end users in mind so earphones do not come with the product. Users can use earphones and headphones of their choice.
